Hi, and welcome to another Happy Stampers Blog Hop! My share for today is using the Jolly Friends stamp set from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog Just a few more days and you will be able to order all of the new goodies. I hope you have received your new catalog so that you can make your list.
Our challenge today was to create a project using these colors:
I was determined to use one of my new holiday stamp sets and Jolly Friends seemed to catch my eye. But, you say, these are not really holiday colors! Well, maybe I am stretching my imagination a little, but that is part of the fun, right?!
What do you think?
I started by building my elf and his hat and scarf from Jolly Friends. First I stamped the elf face in Soft Suede onto Whisper White Thick card stock, then added some pink to his cheeks using Pink Pirouette and a Q-tip. Then, I fussy cut it out using my paper snips. Next, I stamped the scarf, hat pieces and the bell. I used Old Olive ink on the scarf and hat pieces and then filled in the spaces with my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker. The bell is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink. I pulled out my Jolly Hat Builder Punch (available as a bundle to save !0% with this stamp set) and punched out the hat pieces.
For the Crumb Cake panel, I stamped the “snow” images from Jolly Friends in Versa Mark and heat embossed them with White Embossing Powder. Next, I created the banner sentiment using one of the sentiments from Cookie-Cutter Christmas, another new stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. It is stamped in Old Olive ink on a panel of Whisper White and punched with the Duet Banner Punch. I also punched one in Bermuda Bay and one in Old Olive, cut them in half and adhered them to the White one with glue.
I popped my elf parts onto the front with dimensionals, added the banner sentiment with dimensionals and then added some Bermuda Bay sequins with glue dots. This whole panel was then ready to be added to the Bermuda Bay card base (with dimensionals) that is layered with a panel of Berumda Bay from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stacks.
For the inside, I chose a sentiment from Suite Seasons, another new set found in the Holiday Catalog, and stamped it in Bermuda Bay ink.
